One of the most comprehensive directories ever produced for Derbyshire, and with 996 pages. Published in 1857 by Francis White & Co.
The main part of the directory covers extensive descriptions of each town and village, together with its history and facilities, churches, schools, unions, etc. and of course, complete listings of each person having a trade. Not just commercial businesses, but includes thousands of farmers, bricklayers, dress makers working from home and so on. Superb and comprehensive information for family historians with Derbyshire ancestors.
The first part of the book is devoted to a very detailed history and description of the county, with topographical, commercial and agricultural information, mineral resources and production, public institutions, charities, magistrates, public officers, and the seats of nobility and gentry.
